“More Perfect Love” By Kirk Hunt
Can a woman forget her nursing child,
And not have compassion on the son of her womb?
Surely they may forget,
Yet I will not forget you.
Isaiah 49:15 NKJV
(Please also read Jeremiah 49:14–18
I cannot imagine a mother forgetting about her infant. Or see the picture of her heartlessly condemning her baby. Among human beings, a mother’s love is the gold standard. Still, even a mother’s love is second-best, compared to the perfect love of God.
He loves us. Despite how we speak and act. Despite our disobedience and flaws. He loves us, absolutely. Tenderly and graciously, God cares for us, no matter what. Sound familiar?
Human mothers are flesh and blood. Money, knowledge, health and time itself place limits on even the best mothers. With perfect knowledge and infinite power, God has the will and the means to do what is best for us. And He does so, more often than we think or know.
Of course, one of His best instruments for demonstrating His love for us is through your mother. As beloved and honored as our earthly mothers are, their love is a pointer to perfect love. A mother’s love reflects an infinite and flawless source.
God loves you purely. God loves you endlessly. God loves you perfectly.
Think: Not even a mother can love me as well as God loves me.
Pray: “Lord, remind me again how much You love me.”
